I had unbelievable heartburn too, for me it was worse than the pain from the incisions. It almost felt like my esophagus was "seizing" and I had to breathe through it like they were contractions LOL. But maybe that was just getting used to the narrowness. It has been better as soon as I could restart my omeprazole. I was also disappointed because most people said they didn't even felt hungry. I did the preop diet for 10 days before surgery, so was surprised to feel starving as soon as I woke up from surgery. I have no idea about that. Maybe my stomach just translates any feeling into hunger. Anyway I hope you are doing better and if you need to talk we are all here for support!
Home for a few days. Disappointed not feeling great. I read how easy it is for others. I just don't feel well. Heartburn off the chain. Struggling with my antibiotics
How are you doing....I'm going on the 18th for my sleeve.
Just stopped by to send my wishes for your surgery to go smoothly and your rapid recovery!
Try to sleep tonight through the excitement! lol
Wishing you a safe surgery and speedy recovery tomorrow.
Good luck on your surgery Monday. Hope your recovery is speedy. Reach out if you have any questions or need any support. Congrats!
Hey yolymarie :-)
I know your liquid diet is only 3 days, but I just made a blog post about the first 5 days of my pre-op diet and what's been working for me I thought you might want to check out (in case you want to kick start ;-) ).
Is your 3 day pre-op diet just clear liquids only? I'm curious about the differences.
it was awesome! We were offered the opportunity for surgery a day earlier, and everyone in our group threw our hands in the air!
No pain. No nausea. No throat tightness or burping spells (yep, guy from earlier).
Sorry I didn't reply earlier, but I only had my phone, and I'm not too good at navigating this site even with my desktop :-)
I am so glad!!
Thanks. I'm home and doing great. I'm still on the liquid diet. I haven't had pain medication since the first night of arriving home.
I'm doing great. My surgery went well. I'm experiencing minor pains. I'm scheduled for my X-ray tomorrow. I fly home on Thursday morning.

I did it. I am officially scheduled for January 10th, 2017! I am so nervous but with the help of this site I think it will be amazing.
